1870 Mason County Mortality Schedule

The numbers in the first column represent the family's number in the 1870 census. I have extracted those families from the census and you may view them by clicking on the family number on this mortality schedule (and occasionally a family is continued on the next page.) The enumerator did not properly number Manito, Quiver and Mason City townships so those families were not extracted.

Family numbers with a * by them were misnumbered by the enumerator and are not linked. Numbers with a ** by them were supposedly numbered correctly, but they did not seem to fit in with the family of the same number in the census. I included those families in the extraction just in case they are correct. In some instances the Family number is one number off from the actual family in the census. Also note that not all of those shown as "Town of Havana" were actually in the town in the actual census, but are listed as such in the mortality schedule

Please Note: These records were transcribed from images of the original mortality schedule. The enumerator occasionally made errors or spelled names as they sounded, and in some cases the writing was difficult to read. This transcription shows the information as the enumerator wrote it. If you have corrections, please Email me
